In a landmark achievement for sustainable transportation, Grammer Logistics has recently been honored as a SmartWay High Performer by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This recognition marks not just a milestone but a testament to our unwavering commitment to green logistics.
Scott Dobak, CEO and President of Grammer Logistics, expressed his pride in this achievement, stating, “Grammer’s ongoing focus on investing in best-in-class equipment has allowed our company to achieve the prestigious SmartWay High Performer status by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Continuing to prioritize environmentally responsible initiatives not only benefits our business but serves a higher purpose for the future of the planet. We are truly grateful for this recognition.”
The EPA’s SmartWay Transport Partnership, a renowned public-private initiative, aims to improve freight efficiency and foster cleaner air through reduced transportation emissions. Being highlighted as a SmartWay High Performer underscores Grammer Logistics’ role as one of the most efficient and environmentally conscious carriers in the industry.
Remarkably, fewer than 10 percent of SmartWay carriers achieve this elite status. As a 2023 SmartWay High Performer for carbon emissions, we at Grammer Logistics take pride in operating our fleet with optimal efficiency. This means we consume significantly less fuel and emit fewer greenhouse gases per mile traveled and ton hauled, far surpassing industry standards.
One of our key steps toward sustainability has been the adoption of Advanced Fleet Technology. We’ve invested in newer, more efficient truck models that significantly lower emissions. These aren’t just any trucks; they’re models that meet, and often exceed, the most stringent environmental standards. This forward-thinking approach not only contributes to a cleaner environment but also reflects our commitment to leading the industry with innovative solutions.
For over 50 years, transporting hazardous materials and chemicals nationwide has not just been about logistics for us; it’s been about responsibility. Safety, reliability, and now, environmental stewardship are the cornerstones of our operations. This involves investing in a modern fleet of specialized equipment and ensuring our drivers are extensively trained, not just for security but for maximum operational efficiency.
This SmartWay accolade is more than an honor; it’s a motivation. It propels us to innovate further and implement even more robust green supply chain initiatives. As we continue to set high standards in efficient freight logistics, we invite our partners and clients to join us in this green journey, shaping a sustainable future together.
